As a passionate – yet pragmatic – enthusiast of multi-paradigm and polyglot engineering, Paulmichael has spent the past 17 years blending a disparate array of languages, technologies, and methodologies to develop compelling solutions to a wide range of business problems. He especially enjoys solving challenges in distributed computing, visual communications, and heterogeneous enterprise systems. Paulmichael is a co-founder of NashF# (the Nashville F# Meetup) and a co-organizer of the New York City F# Users Group. In 2014 and 2015, he received a Microsoft MVP Award for his work in the .NET community. When not at the keyboard, Paulmichael may be found globe-trotting with his wife and son (though his soul is still honky-tonkin’ in Nashville, TN).
